Welcome to the Smith Island Crab Skiff Association. Stay a while; learn the history of the crab skiff, the races of the 1920s and the 1930s, and the races of today. Meet our members and their families and see for yourself just how much fun racing crab skiffs can be!


   Maryland Outdoors feature crab skiffs!

A production crew from Maryland Outdoors, one of the most popular programs viewed on Maryland Public Television, videotaped the races July 16, 2016, at Tall Timbers Marina and interviewed club members. A big thank you to Karl Nisson for his public relations efforts to secure media coverage for the crab skiffs, their owners and the races! The race segment (third on the video) was broadcast November 22.
